Comparability — General

The universe differs across countries.

Comparability — Kyrgyz Republic [top]

Only persons who migrated since 1989 were to answer the question. Many of those migrants did not give a response. Some persons who migrated prior to 1989 did respond, although it is unknown how representative they are.

The census question speaks to both internal (within Kyrgyzstan) and external refugees.

Comparability — Palestine [top]

The samples are comparable. The 1997 and 2017 samples distinguish between registered and non-registered refugees, but the 2007 sample does not.
